The MecaRoll system is used as a safe conveying system in the open area between the roll store, reel preparation and the automatic reelstand. It effectively satisfies the special conditions with respect to the safety of personnel and the careful, protective transport of the rolls.
The guide rail comprises 2 U-shaped steel profiles mounted on a hollow profile. Two flat steel cover profiles close the rail off at the top. A duplex roller chain transfers the drive force non-positively by friction to the skid at the roll trolley. The chain is guided by a plastic slide rail. Each rail section comprises a drive and a tensioning station. The frequency-controlled hollow shaft gear motor can be fitted with a pulse transmitter for the accurate positioning of the roll or the roll trolley.
The ROLLI System is the manually driven version of this conveying system.
